Residential Real Estate Sales Broker
Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
Cadey O’Leary’s 15 years of experience running her own business, excelling in marketing, sales and business development roles, and working with luxury properties set her up for success as a luxury agent. Now three years into her real estate career, she has developed a reputation for her superior marketing strategies and business savvy. “I understand and apply fundamental business principles of exceptional client service and process-driven practices in my real estate business,” she says.
O’Leary says she always had an affinity for elegant living and interior design. In addition to running her own business, she worked closely for more than a decade with a Lincoln Park design-build firm, becoming deeply involved in the company’s processes and sales and marketing initiatives. Her experience with luxury homes and condos, and those who develop them, makes her an ideal partner for any luxury developer. “I specialize in developer marketing and sales, offering turnkey solutions to developers of luxury homes and condos,” she says. O’Leary is also well-versed in the needs of buyers and sellers seeking single-family homes and condos in the Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Bucktown, and North Center markets.
The majority of her business comes from referrals. “Each client has a different need,” she says, explaining her approach to individualized service. “My primary approach is to engage them, listen and understand their unique challenge or objective, and formulate a plan to help them achieve it.” O’Leary sees serving buyers and sellers as a privilege, and feels fortunate that she can combine her love of new construction and representing clients, noting that “watching a client transform a dated home into a lovely new environment reflecting their taste” is particularly rewarding.
When she isn’t selling homes, O’Leary finds further professional fulfillment working with a real estate networking group and serving as a board member of the Sheffield Neighborhood Association. She is also a long-time parishioner of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Lincoln Park, where she is very involved in the parish community. In her down time, O’Leary loves getting together for dinners with her family and friends, watching home remodeling shows, and enjoying city life.
